East 59th

Inspired by a New York rooftop bar and restaurant, East 59th is bright, airy, and busy. It's a celebration of contemporary American cuisine during the day, with bottomless brunch offered seven days a week. Enjoy pancakes, a selection of egg dishes, or bagels from midday to late afternoon, with or without unlimited bubbly or Bloody Marys, and finish with a typical ice cream sundae or slice of New York cheesecake.

The space transforms into a stylish Manhattan-style rooftop bar with a modest drink menu, à la carte cuisine with a range of steak and burger options, and live music on occasion in the evenings.


Angelica is a rooftop restaurant and cocktail bar in the heart of Leeds city centre, overlooking Trinity Leeds Shopping Complex, with a wraparound terrace and panoramic city views.

Throughout the day, a diverse a la carte menu is available in a casual yet modern setting. All-day brunch features East Coast seafood and salads, as well as seasonal appetisers, main courses, and desserts. Cocktails are provided till the wee hours of the morning.
